Moving From Fear to Freedom

Moving From Fear to Freedom

The truth is that fear will return time and again
until the individual goes deep inside and does not hold
back.

What fears do you currently carry, and where did you learn them?
Write out each fear, and then write beside them what your life would
be like without them holding you back. Be willing to accept that, even
though you may always feel the sensation of the fear, it does not have
to stop you in your tracks. Feel the sensation, own it, and move forward.
We will continue to die a little every day until we
move from fear to honoring our feelings to freedom.
We go through the resurrection of fear to feelings
to freedom when we are willing to leave the old cross
on the hill where it belongs. The only saving we need
is to be saved from ourselves.

When we embrace the feelings, it leads us to greater
insights and wisdom, shape-shifting our current
realities into something much deeper and perhaps
even magical.

What are your deepest fears? List them one by one and give yourself
a few hours to really greet them, name them, and own them. Once you
have finished this process, set aside half an hour to be uninterrupted
in a quiet space. Play soft music if it helps you relax, but not music
with lyrics, for the words will be a distraction.

Go into your inner awareness of quiet and ask your Creator or guides
to bless you with your sacred warrior shield. Whatever it is, accept it and
give thanks for it. You will carry this shield in your mind and heart each
time a deep fear presents itself. You will use it until the fear dissipates.
Guess what? Each time you grow deeper into the greatest dreams
of your life, your fears will knock on your inner door again. Own them
and dust off your shield and use it again. This time it will happen more
quickly, and the transformation will be less tedious.
How are you sabotaging your gifts and talents? What would you do,
be, and share if you had not told yourself you couldn’t, either by your
own limitations or someone else’s? How do you continue to sabotage
your good?

How do you hold back with the people closest to you? What stories
in your life do not add up? Are they real, or are they only what you have
held as being true? Are your wanting and your being going in the same
direction? Please write in your journal how this is so.

Keep Your Eyes Open for God’s Surprises

Another great story to share.. about a professor who sat at his desk one evening working on the next day’s lectures. His housekeeper had laid that days mail and papers at his desk and he began to shuffle through them discarding most to the wastebasket. He then noticed a magazine, which was not even addressed…

Unique Souls

Unique Souls

God is the only presence and power in the universe. Each of us is an individualized expression of the One. Our souls, like our fingerprints are unique. We each follow our unique paths, and our souls recognize the way of these paths. Sayings like “that touched my soul,” are mirrors of who we are as…

A Place of Wholeness

A Place of Wholeness

I have been doing christening ceremonies for the past twenty-three years, and each time I invite everyone from the immediate “village,” who are there to support the child to come into a circle. I always ask, “What do you wish and pray for with this child?” The answers come quickly: to live his dreams, to…

Drained to Impassioned

Would you say that you have felt somewhat disconnected and drained? Do you often feel like life is not giving you the joy, passion, and drive you felt when you were a child? Have you ever felt like you awoke from a dream that wouldn’t let you go even though you knew you had woken…
